I have not eaten here twice, once for lunch and once for dinner. Got to go both times. The food was prepared fast and the staff was friendly. The food though was mediocre. I ordered two different dishes both times, and while it tastes authentic, the food lacked depth. I likely won't be back for a third try. The one... More

This restaurant was within walking distance of our hotel so had dinner there on our first night on SF. We ordered several appetizers to share and they were all delicious and beautifully presented. The atmosphere is quite lovely also and I thought the prices were reasonable.

The restaurant at 311 3rd St‎ was beautiful with rich wood tones, lighting, and comfortable seats. We sat in chairs at a table so I don't know how comfortable the benches with triangular pillows were but the people sitting there looked like they enjoyed it. I ordered the crispy salmon and loved the mix of flavors. Everyone enjoyed their meal... More

We were staying nearby. Weren't in the mood to get dressed up to go out, so I opted for take out. The food was excellent and was prepared very quickly.

Everyone enjoyed their entrees at this conveniently located restaurant. The prices are very reasonable, especially for the location. The service was efficient and attentive. The Volcanic Beef house specialty was not very spicy, it was simply presented in the form of a volcano. We will definitely eat there again.

I've eaten here several times, and both the service and food are consistently very good to excellent. The restaurant is tastefully decorated, with a wall of windows looking out at the Embarcadero Plaza and Ferry Bldg. And they validate parking in the EC garage (4 hours for $2!), always a "plus" in San Francisco

Four of us arrived and the server/hostess seated us at a huge table for 8 by the door. When we asked if we could sit at the table for 6 just 4 tables away she very curtly said no, it was a closed section although it had diners at two table adjacent to it. Fair enough I guess. I asked... More

From outward appearance a beautiful dining room with a lot of ambiance. Food was good for this first time Thai taster. Hot and sour soup with scallops very tasty. Ginger Kobi beef nice flavor. Hostess less than friendly and waitress could hardly understand English. A nice experience but I won't return.

Marvellous Thai food near the ferry buildings and financial district of downtown San Francisco. The restaurant had a friendly and warm feel, and service was with a fabulous smile and all 3 courses of food superb. Highly recommended.

I don't usually eat calamari but I went here with some friends and we ordered some calamari for appetizers and dinner, and by far they are some of the best tasting calamari I've had. All the food there tasted pretty good and I'll be more than happy to go there again and have more to eat.
